The race was initially held for four years between 1991-1994, before moving to the Sydney Motorsport Park in 1995. The race remained on hiatus until it returned to Mount Panorama, Bathurst in Easter, 2007, with new promoters.
Mount Panorama is the world-renowned circuit located in Bathurst, New South Wales.
Known as the spiritual home of Australian Motor Racing, the circuit became famous via the annual Bathurst 1000 classic which was first held (over 500 miles) in 1963.
The Bathurst 1000 is now one of Australia’s largest sporting events, attracting more than 200,000 people across its four days – but the Mountain is more than just the annual October classic, now hosting the Bathurst 12 Hour in February and the Bathurst 6 Hour for Production Cars each Easter.
